CINCINNATI, OH (September 13, 2017) – Michelman will introduce LabelExpo Europe 2017 visitors to JetPrime® UV 100, a new primer that shows significant improvement on challenging paper substrates in ink performance and print quality when used for UV inkjet printing applications. Michelman is excited to showcase its inkjet technology in stand 5D20 at Labelexpo Europe 2017, which is being held September 25-28 at the Brussels Expo.
JetPrime® UV 100 enhances the ease of printing because it is formulated for use with multiple paper types including coated, uncoated, as well as thermal paper substrates. It is an effective primer for label printing, particularly wine label applications, where it has been tested and approved by major original equipment manufacturers. “Michelman’s JetPrime UV 100 allows our customers to print on more demanding label stocks and meet the print quality and end user expectations,” explains Julie Cross, Technical Director of Domino Digital Printing Solutions, ”the increased flow and adhesion of our ink set on the primed media expands the application space for Domino.”
This new primer enriches shelf appeal because of better image quality through improved hold out and reduced bleed and mottle. It can also be applied via flexo or gravure printing methods.
